3. South Pearl Street Market: HobNob Events manages the South Pearl Street Farmers Market. They strive to support and enhance the surrounding community by providing a Farmers Market experience where a great variety of fresh and wholesome products can be found. It is important to support our local community, therefore, all products must be grown, raised, produced or gathered by the vendor in the State of Colorado or in counties bordering the State of Colorado. In the case that a product is unavailable in the state of Colorado but we feel it would be a benefit to the market and the vendors we will evaluate the relationship between the vendor and the producer and make the best decision we can noting that sometimes there are exceptions to the rule.
